    Nathan, I nominated Ryan Moore but not for the Grey Gatsby ride. Are jockeys only allowed 1 ride each?

    It would be a tragedy of injustice for Ryan Moore to only be nominated for an award for a ride where he was simply going as fast as the horse could manage and then not get a shout for a truly brilliant piece of tactics in the Heron Stakes at Sandown.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    Now now Steve, to each his own opinion and of equal worth .

    That’s the point I’m making. I’ve nominated a race and it’s not included.

    Of course everyone has a right to an opinion but I suspect plenty of people saw the Grey Gatsby ride but probably fewer people saw the, in my opinion, far superior ride on Master Craftsman.

    The ATR race report for The Grey Gatsby at The Curragh reads:-

    "In rear, pushed along approaching straight, switched right 2f out and progress to go 2nd over 1f out, kept on under pressure, led close home"

    The race report on the same site for Master Carpenter at Sandown reads:-

    "Dwelt in touch in rear, raced wide until switched to inside 6f out, headway to lead over 4f out, switched to stand side 3f out, ridden over 1f out, ran on strongly (great ride)"

    The latter race was a clear case of the jockey’s tactics making all the difference and, in my opinion of course, anyone who voted for the Curragh ride, without seeing the Sandown one, is doing themselves a great disfavour.

    Did you see the Master Carpenter ride Chief? I’d love to know your opinion if you did. Maybe I’m overrating it but I know The Ante Post King was impressed that night as well as myself.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    I nominated

    Emerging Talent

    for the One To Watch in 2015, Nathan. :)

    By the way, can I add Simon Clare for the villain category? He’s not a villain in my eyes, but the recent thread and twitter antics with DC make me think he’d get a few votes. I promise to get a video reaction from the man himself if he wins too!

    There are several

    poster

    s who should be on that list who aren’t but I’m loathe to nominate because I wouldn’t want people I didn’t nominate or forgot to nominate to feel like lesser posters because every individual’s contribution and even visit to these boards is invaluable. I suppose it’s the socialist in me but can I nominate

    "Everybody"

    ?

    Jump Jockey

    Richard Johnson

    is always worthy of a nomination. Were it not for AP, Johnson would be the record breaking GOAT and his style, both when introducing an animal to an obstacle and carrying a horse over the line, are truly what makes the jumps game so special.

    Hero

    – There are stronger nominations but the

    Diana Whateley Trinity

    (I thought triumvirate was a little too strong) of Wishful Thinking, Captain Chris and Menorah deserve a place in the field. At the ages of nine, ten and eleven, they have all emerged from dips in form to put in some very classy and courageous performances this year. Not only did they encapsulate the wonderful longevity of well trained animals, they re-enforced the adage that whilst form is temporary, class is permanent.

    Villain

    – Animal Aid should win in a hack canter but a nomination for the

    ATR producers

    wouldn’t be undeserved. The frequency of the adverts puts NFL coverage to shame, these adverts all too frequently cut into actual races and the small-screening of high class/intriguing races in favour of plating class races on sand happens is amateur at best. Gary O’Brien is lost on ATR

    Racecourse

    Auteuil

    . Free entry, wonderful atmosphere, top class racing, excellent facilities and terrific viewing. As it’s a fairly static award, I’m surprised to see Cheltenham off the list as even when it’s a partial building site, it is still the Mecca of jumps racing. Hexham gets an honourable mention for simply being a beautiful racecourse.

    Riding Performance

    – Richard Johnson – Fingal Bay, Pertemps Final, Cheltenham

    Whilst his mount travelled well, entering the straight, he had to wake Fingal Bay up. Keeping him composed after he made a hash of the last, he had to throw a combination strength and guile at the fragile and ponderous horse to make sure he was at the right place at the right time in a thoroughly absorbing finish. His display of humanity for his conquered adversary when the result was announced was truly poignant.

    No I didn’t see it Steve. Will keep my eyes out on ATR when their ride of the year highlights start.

    You might be waiting a while for it to appear on ATR.

    Here you go.

    I’ve added those Bach as well as adding Ruby Walsh to the jumps jockey as it’s not a list without him, surely?.

    That’s a great shout BH, I love the 3 of them……….I hope they get a good few votes.
